Hilton’s brightest weekend of the year happens on 13,14 and 15 September in 2019.
Hilton Arts Festival organisers have made an announcement, ‘In an effort to reduce our waste impact at #HiltonArtsFest 2019 we have banned all service providers from bringing in single-use plastic straws and polystyrene. We have asked everyone involved to keep all plastic to a minimum. Help us make a difference by bringing your own re-useable coffee cups, bamboo straws and tote bags for shopping and tag us using #choosetorefuseathiltonarts.’
The response to their Facebook post has been positive, we applaud this turn around.
Artist, Facebook user and festival exhibitor Emma McNally Jacobs says, ‘Good call. We artists usually bring our own mugs and the coffee vendors are usually very obliging!’
